Western Allegheny Railroad

 The Western Allegheny Railroad passed through today's Moraine State Park as it ran from Queen Junction to New Castle. Some of the old railbed is visible in the park; the rest is under the lake. This railroad provided a vital service from 1906-1939 but is mostly not known by today's park visitors. On Wednesday, September 27,  author Polly Shaw will be presenting a free program, open to the public at shelter #7, McDanel's area at Moraine State Park. The pavilion is open to the weather, and near the Owlet Gift Shop 118 N Shore Dr, Portersville, PA 16051.

Come for a lovely weekday evening in the park and explore the history of the Western Allegheny Railroad. Pre-registration is not required.
